    • Stephane Robidas (leg) expects to participate in drills during training camp.
      Advice: He's hoping to play in a couple of preseason games and be ready for the start of the year in October. Robidas is still recovering from two separate leg fractures, but he's been skating since the end of June and said he felt "great" earlier this month.

    • Olli Maatta (shoulder) will be able to take part in "limited contact" at the start of camp.
      Advice: He has been on the mend from off-season shoulder surgery since May. Maatta recorded nine goals and 29 points in 78 games during his rookie campaign. It appears as though he could be on track to be fine for the start of the season.

    • Penguins head coach Mike Johnson is expected to receive news from team doctors on Olli Maatta's surgically repaired shoulder on Wednesday or Thursday.
      Advice: Maatta has been recovering nicely from the shoulder surgery that he received in May and could be cleared for contact just in time for training camp if the medical report goes well. His timeline to return was four-to-six months so fantasy owners have to be thrilled with this good news. There is a chance that he could return to the lineup for opening night but the coaching staff won't guarantee anything. This is definitely a situation worth monitoring as the 2012 first-rounder showed brilliance during his rookie season.

    • Kris Letang is upbeat about new Penguins head coach Mike Johnston.
      Advice: "Every time you have something new in life, you're pretty excited," Letang said. "You want to get it going. You want to see what it's like to have change. Every one of us is really excited." Letang is entering the first season of his eight-year, $58 million contract. He's one of the best offensive defensemen in the game, but he has ran into a variety of health problems over the last few years.

    • Kris Letang seems optimistic about his improved health this summer, but maybe most of all, he's excited that the Pittsburgh Penguins are emphasizing puck possession.
      Advice: The talented defenseman obviously had a rough season with a frightening stroke situation, yet that may open the door for him to slip in certain drafts. He's one of the few blueliners who can bring value comparable to Erik Karlsson and P.K. Subban if everything's clicking.
